Warranty & Returns

Standard Warranty:

All of our trees and shrubs come with a 30-day warranty from the date of delivery. This means that if your tree/shrub is damaged in shipment or if it dies within 30 days of your delivery, we will gladly offer a replacement or credit. Should you receive your tree/shrub during dormancy, and it does not emerge from dormancy by June 1st - the same replacement policy applies.

If, within this period, you notice any issues with the health or condition of your plants, please contact us immediately. We will work with you to provide a suitable solution.

For added peace of mind, we offer a 1 year extended warranty option. You can choose to purchase an extended warranty for 12% of your cart total at the time of purchase. This extended warranty covers your trees and shrubs for 1 year from the date of delivery. If your tree/shrub dies within the extended warranty period, we will provide you with a replacement plant or issue store credit for the amount of your original purchase. Shipping fees are not included.

Tree and Shrub heights are measured from the top of the root ball or soil, measuring only the above ground portion of your tree your shrub.

Are you looking to add a touch of elegance and natural beauty to your landscape? Look no further than the China Girl Holly, a versatile and visually striking evergreen shrub. With its glossy, deep green leaves and bright red berries, this holly variety is a showstopper year-round. Here's everything you need to know about this stunning plant:

Growing Zones: China Girl Holly is adaptable and can thrive in USDA hardiness zones 5 to 9. This means it can flourish in a wide range of climates, making it an excellent choice for many regions in the United States.

Basic Care Tips:

  1. Planting Location: Choose a well-draining location with partial to full sun exposure for your China Girl Holly. It can tolerate some shade but will produce the most berries in full sun.

  2. Soil Requirements: This holly prefers slightly acidic to neutral soil. Ensure the soil is rich and fertile, and amend it with organic matter for optimal growth.

  3. Watering: Keep the soil consistently moist, especially during the establishment period. Once established, China Girl Holly is moderately drought-tolerant.

  4. Pruning: Pruning can help shape the shrub and remove any dead or unwanted growth. The best time to prune is in late winter or early spring.

  5. Fertilizing: Apply a balanced, slow-release fertilizer in early spring to provide essential nutrients to your China Girl Holly.

  6. Pest and Disease Resistance: One of the advantages of planting China Girl Holly is its resistance to many common pests and diseases. However, monitor for any issues and treat promptly if necessary.

  7. Berries: The vibrant red berries that appear in the fall are a major attraction. They are loved by birds and add a festive touch to your winter landscape.

  8. Winter Interest: The glossy, dark green leaves and red berries provide a welcome burst of color during the winter months when many other plants are dormant.
